Warning up vs 2 Lotte candies, Korean cookie
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned against buying and consuming three food products that are unregistered with the health authority.
The FDA identified the products as Lotte Throat Candy Mix Berries, Mammos Korean Cookie, and Lotte Cooling Up Throat Candy Ice Mint.
The agency said its post-marketing surveillance verified that the three products have not gone through the registration process, so its quality and safety is not guaranteed.
“The consumption of such violative products may pose potential health hazards to the consuming public,” it said.
Establishments were warned not to distribute the food products while local government units and law enforcement agencies were told to ensure that the three products are not sold in their areas of jurisdiction.
